Psalm 44 (lord, We Have Heard Thy Works Of Old)

Psalm 44. 1 2 3 8 15-26
The church's complaint in persecution.


Lord, we have heard thy works of old,
Thy works of power and grace,
When to our ears our fathers told
The wonders of their days:

How thou didst build thy churches here,
And make thy gospel known;
Amongst them did thine arm appear,
Thy light and glory shone.

In God they boasted all the day,
And in a cheerful throng
Did thousands meet to praise and pray,
And grace was all their song.

But now our souls are seiz'd with shame,
Confusion fills our face,
To hear the enemy blaspheme,
And fools reproach thy grace.

Yet have we not forgot our God,
Nor falsely dealt with heaven,
Nor have our steps declin'd the road
Of duty thou hast given.

Tho' dragons all around us roar
With their destructive breath,
And thine own hand has bruis'd us sore
Hard by the gates of death.

PAUSE.

We are expos'd all day to die
As martyrs for thy cause,
As sheep for slaughter bound we lie
By sharp and bloody laws.

Awake, arise, almighty Lord,
Why sleeps thy wonted grace?
Why should we look like men abhorr'd,
Or banish'd from thy face?

Wilt thou for ever cast us off
And still neglect our cries?
For ever hide thine heavenly love
From our afflicted eyes?

Down to the dust our soul is bow'd,
And dies upon the ground;
Rise for our help, rebuke the proud,
And all their powers confound.

Redeem us from perpetual shame,
Our Saviour and our God;
We plead the honours of thy Name,
The merits of thy blood.

Psalm 45:1. S. M.The glory of Christ; the success ofthe gospel; and the Gentile church.My Saviour and my King,Thy beauties are divine;Thy lips with blessings overflow,And every grace is thine. Now make thy glory known,Gird on thy dreadful sword,And ride in majesty to spreadThe conquests of thy word.Strike thro' thy stubborn foes,Or melt their hearts t'obey,While justice, meekness, grace, and truth,Attend thy glorious way.

Psalm 42:2. 6-11. Second PartMelancholy thoughts reproved;or, Hope in afflictions.My spirit sinks within me, Lord,But I will call thy name to mind,And times of past distress record,When I have found my God was kind.Huge troubles, with tumultuous noise,Swell like a sea, and round me spread;Thy water-spouts drown all my joys,And rising waves roll o'er my head.Yet will the Lord command his love,When I address his throne by day,Nor in the night his grace remove;The night shall hear me sing and pray.I'll cast myself before his feet,And say "My God, my heavenly Rock,"Why doth thy love so long forget"The soul that groans
